Clergy appeal over organ donors

From the BBC-

Leaders of the UK's main religions have appealed to their followers to support a campaign to register as organ donors.

They are trying to counter uncertainty about what their religions teach about organ donation.
The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, the head of the Muslim Council of Britain and the Chief Rabbi are among those involved.

Three people die a day in the UK because there is no suitable organ available for transplant for them.

BBC News Religious Affairs Correspondent Robert Pigott says senior clergy report that some people are unsure what their religion teaches about the subject.
